Better late than never--sorry.
Have you seen *Le Pompe, 1559 Pattens for Venetian bobbin lace* by
Santina M. Levey and Patricia C. Payne? ISBN 0 903585 16 2
It's a facsimile plus historic and technical notes. Oops sorry it's from
1983--I keep forgetting how long ago it was that I was buying lace books. It
is choice, tho. Maybe you can ILL it.
